Logistics ME Power List: No 11 Syed Mustafa
Vice president of logistics, Almajdouie Group
With the logistics sector increasing its focus on the Saudi Arabian market, it makes sense that Syed Mustafa heads the list of entrants from the Kingdom in this year’s power list. As vice president of logistics at the Almajdouie Group, Mustafa has helped to pioneer the concept of outsourced logistics in Saudi Arabia, with major breakthroughs being achieved in recent years. As a result, the growth of Almajdouie’s various logistics operations has outperformed some of the biggest players in the industry, especially with ventures such as Almajdouie Logistics and Distribution (MLD), Almajdouie PSC Heavy Lift Company (MPSC) and Almajdouie Heavylift Transport and Engineering (MHL). As acceptance of outsourced supply chains increases in the Kingdom, Mustafa’s biggest challenge is maintaining Almajdouie’s lead in the wake of competition from newer entrants, such as Wared Logistics and Hala Supply Chain Services.
